Students attending coding camp will learn computational thinking and how to program in popular languages such as Python and Java to solve problems and create simple games.
Students will be instructed by Robin Mitchell, assistant professor of computer science at Manchester University.

The registration deadline is May 27.

Robotics Day Camp is 9 a.m. to noon June 20-24 for students entering grades 6-8. The cost is $99.

Campers will learn to build, program and test robots that move using motors. They will program their robot to interact with its environment using sensors and navigate an obstacle course.
